It has been reported that at this week’s Open Source Leadership Summit, the Linux Foundation announced the Red Team Project. This has been set up as an incubator for open-source Red Team security tools. These include programs that support cyber range automation, containerised pentesting utilities, binary risk analysis, and standards validation programs. 

Thomas Richards, Network and Red Team Practice Director at Synopsys:

This project is a great idea.  Red Teaming is becoming more important for organisations as their security program matures.  We are seeing more companies create in-house Red Teams to simulate adversaries attacking the organisation.  These simulations allow the organisation to improve their defence posture by validating if their security controls are functioning properly. Curating these tools and keeping them up to date will provide both blue and red teams the ability to improve themselves by bettering the testing activities and detection techniques.”
